Gorilla Bags airbags

Gorilla Bags hold packed cargo firmly in place and prevent damage to the products when the container is being moved. Made of polypropylene, this top-class innovation takes product protection to a whole new level!



Gorilla airbags are designed to hold packaged cargo firmly in place and prevent damage to products when the container is being moved. Without airbags, cargo can become dislocated during transportation, which can result in damage to products or even to the vehicle. Keep in mind that the sender is responsible for the shipment and its safe packaging throughout the trip. The cost of airbags is often less than 1 per cent of the value of the entire cargo, so it provides cost-effective protection as well as peace of mind during shipment.

The main differences between conventional paper airbags and Gorilla airbags are the durability, speed of use and lightness of Gorillla bags. The polypropylene airbag withstands moisture and significantly more wear and tear than conventional airbags. With its Turboflow valve, inflation of the airbag is up to 50 per cent faster than with a normal valve, and over-inflation is prevented by means of an automatic pressure regulator.

Gorilla airbags are available in several size categories, and you can find all the models and prices in our brochure. The minimum order quantity is one pallet. The product is delivered directly from our central warehouse within about one week. We also keep smaller amounts of individual products in our warehouse in Finland for urgent orders.

  • What does "handling fee" mean?

    Every time a container, whether it is a container for lease or sale, is moved around a depot, it requires a lift. The handling fee is a one-time cost that covers moving the container around in the depot areas. The fee is only applicable when you lease a container or have a one-way deal with us. We never charge you a handling fee when you buy a container outright, so there are no hidden costs.

  • What do the different container delivery options mean?

    It does not matter if you buy or lease a container; MC Containers can deliver it to you. We use a variety of container delivery methods, including the following container trucking methods:

    • Chassis / CPT (Carriage Paid To)
    • On ground / DAP (Delivered At Place)
    • FOT DEPOT / FCA (Free Carrier)

    Chassis delivery means that your new, used or modified container will be delivered to the destination on a container chassis. However, this service does not include removing it from the chassis. If you decide to buy a container, it is your responsibility to organize a crane or another piece of machinery to offload it. This is the most common container delivery method in Europe due to the better availability of trucks and cost effective rates.

    On Ground Deliveries are done with a truck that can drop the container to the ground with it’s own equipment. Normally, the container delivery is done using a side loader or a truck equipped with a crane. The standard delivery price includes 30-45 min of unloading time per container and any extra time is billed at an hourly rate. If you don’t have a crane available or cannot organize one then this is the best and only option for you.

    FOT DEPOT means Free on Truck in depot. With this container delivery method, the buyer is responsible for organizing a pickup from the chosen container depot. The seller will organize a lift to the chassis in the container depot, so you will not need a crane or side loader for the pickup.

  • Financial Lease

    Would you like to buy a container, but the price is just too much for your budget to pay in one payment? No worries, together with our partner we offer a flexible financial container lease service. We offer our clients the possibility of buying containers through a financial lease plan. This enables fast delivery with little capital investment. This payment type is only possible for clients with a European VAT ID.

    • Fast handling times and delivery of containers
    • Staggered affordable payments


    To order a shipping container through our lease plan service, the minimum order must be at least 500€, and the person leasing must have a European VAT number.

  • How long can a container be used?

    Shipping containers are made of corten steel. This sturdy material enables them to withstand extreme circumstances (wind, water, fire, ice, salt, sun) and any possible rough handling. A shipping container is used from 5-14 years for shipping; after this, they are released and used for other purposes, such as storage containers or modified container units for food and offices.

    Containers that are not used for shipping are perfectly suitable to be used as storage containers. If taken care of, a used shipping container can be used for storage up to 10 years. It is also possible to extend the storage container’s use by regular maintenance, such as, painting, patching holes, changing seals, fixing the floor and taking care of or changing twist locks.

    New shipping containers are usually brought to Europe from China. A new container can last anywhere up to 30 years when used as storage as long as it is looked after properly.
